Telegram is a messaging app with a focus on speed and security. It’s superfast, simple, secure and free.

Telegram seamlessly syncs across all of your devices and can be used on desktops, tablets and phones alike. You can send an unlimited amount of messages, photos, videos and files of any type (.doc, .zip, .pdf, etc.). Telegram groups have up to 200 people and you can send broadcasts to up to 100 contacts at a time. Be sure to check our website for a list of Telegram apps for all platforms.

We built Telegram to make messaging speedy and safe again, without the usual caveats.

RELIABLE: Built to deliver your messages in the minimum bytes possible, Telegram is the most reliable messaging system ever made. It works even on the weakest mobile connections.

Great alternative to Telegram for Mac. - For those of you who are confused: there are two Telegram offerings in the Mac App Store; this one, Telegram Desktop, is the cross-platform app that also runds on Windows and Linux; it is a fully featured app and a nice alternative client to the Telegram for Mac (listed in the store as “Telegram”) client. The differences between the two are entirely visual, as both offer a very similar set of features. This version features chat backgrounds and a visual style similar to WhatsApp.

Does Not Support Secret Chat - Very nice looking app but the OS X version Does not support secret chat. Why would the developers choose not to support secret chat on the desktop version??
